NuVue is proud to partner with the ARA to bring you ARA NAVIGATOR 360°

An organization’s ability to thrive in challenging times is largely determined by the quality and effectiveness of its leadership. Organizations can change their future by developing their leadership talent to meet current and future needs. The Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) has partnered with NuVue Business Solutions to create leadership assessment – called ARA NAVIGATOR 360° (360-Degree Feedback Instrument) built specifically for the agricultural industry.

ARA NAVIGATOR 360°

ARA NAVIGATOR 360° is a new leadership assessment tool that will assess a leader’s effectiveness in two ways: the level of skill the leader has, and the ability to use those skills appropriately when needed. The interactive report guides the leader on skills they use effectively and the skills they need to develop.
